GABLE STAGE AT THE BILTMORE PRESENTS
“KINGS” BY SARAH BURGESS
Kings is a lacerating comedy about a newly elected congresswoman who refuses to play by the rules of lobbyists -or even her own party. It is an extremely entertaining new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic!
Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn’t waste time, her time, on anyone who can’t get elected, and gets her clients what they want. But when she represents a political neophyte with staunch ideals, she is faced with a choice that might change everything for her. Does she back the system, or back what she believes in?
Playwright Sarah Burgess’s Kings, is also about the world of lobbyists. These resourceful, tenacious people aren’t afraid to use the system to get whatever they want because in Washington D.C.,
it's "who you know" that determines what you’re worth, and those connections get you paid. Joseph Adler directs the Kings at Gablestage, at The Biltmore, now on stage thru June 16, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 2019, evenings at 8 p.m. On Sunday 2 and 7 p.m.
Burgess’s fiercely intelligent dialogue and deadpan comic timing make negotiations around tax codes and congressional committees quite funny. The play brilliantly avoids partisan politics and incendiary issues to create a theatre experience for both sides of the aisle. Audiences will leave the play discussing who actually holds the power in our government and whether or not it’s something they want to see changed.
Tickets are $50 now on sale at the theatre’s box office located at 1200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables, in the East section of the Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables. For additional information call 305-445-1119. Online visit GableStage.org.
